7/28/73 Watkins Glen

7/31/73 Roosevelt Stadium, Jersey City ...set 2 begins on Jer's b'day, after midnight
8/1/73 Roosevelt Stadium, Jersey City

9/7/73 Nassau Coliseum, Long Island
9/8/73 Nassau Coliseum, Long Island

9/20/73 The Spectrum, Philly

my top 5 are from the outdoors shows I attended --

6/10 - best sound, top-10 all-time DS. great Eyes, Playin', Bird Song, HC Sunshine. intimate and modal jam at end.
6/9 - 2nd best sound, great Eyes, Playin', TLEO...
7/31 - 2nd set was the most exciting thrill I ever had. 15 or 20 thousand people and GD all trippin' together, and very excited!
8/1 - ditto, sort of...
7/27 - Watkins Glen sound check
